  1. I think you usually only need 5 co-op terms to graduate, so you should be okay.

  2. I want to clarify. I am on my last job right now for fall. What if I quit right now.

  4. Usually you'll fail the co-op term. If you still meet your minimum requirements, you're fine.

    What the hell happened that you need to quit so early in the term?

  5. I am going to go to grad school. And this coop delays my graduation meaning I have to wait a year before I can start the grad school. I already have enough experience.

  6. Just another issue that complicates this is that I have done a previous coop with this company. Though I don't wanna come back here in the foreseeable future (3-4 years). I might find myself back here later because it's a prominent company in my field. So I want to leave but I don't want to ruin my relations.

  7. Thread carefully with this - CECA can decide to kick you out of co-op so on your diploma it won't say you graduated from a co-op program. Also some programs lack non co-op versions, (ex. all engineering programs) so if CECA kicks you out you can't be in engineering anymore.

  8. Will it affect my relationship with my employer, I had an excellent with my manager the last time, but I just am not very personal with him. I want to leave because its a necessity, but I dont want a burnt bridge, and i dont really care about school kicking me out of coop, I already have 5 coop terms, and i am in math so its okay, to top it off i have decent grades, I am just trying to figure out if this could lead to the manager not liking me much anymore

    1. Your manager will likely be pissed at you and wouldn't recommend you to anyone ever lol. He's going to have to go find a replacement for you if you quit which is a very costly and frustrating procedure. Just stick it out for the 4 months. Also you likely signed a unilateral agreement when you were hired which means they can probably sue you if you quit lol

    2. Even if you're not personal with the manager, you should discuss your situation with him. I'm sure most reasonable people will understand your situation, although it will be frustrating for the manager to have to replace you

  9. You seriously need to talk to your co-op advisor.
